You can hear it being said in standards meetings ’round the world, “Do you think the founders would approve of that?” A question I don’t think any of us can really honestly answer. You know why? None of us personally knew our founders. Sure, on paper they look like perfect overachieving angels with great GPAs. You know who else looks like that on paper? Most sorority girls. Yet we all like to think that our founders are looking down on us from the sorority row in heaven shaking their heads as we take shots and dance on tables. But you know what? Our founders probably liked to have fun too.
Honestly, if our founders were to have social media, I think we’d find that they weren’t so different than we are.
